Terrorism:There is no government in Nigeria – Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has reacted to the terrorists’ threat against President Muhammadu Buhari.

Ortom said the threats by bandits to kidnap Buhari was an indication that there is no government in Nigeria.

He lamented that bandits and Fulanis in Afghanistan are the ones abducting Nigerians.

Over the weekend, a video emerged online of bandits threatening to kidnap Buhari and the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai.

Ortom, reacting to the video in a chat with journalists in Makurdi stressed that “things are getting worse in Nigeria.”

He said, “You know I said this before I travelled that very soon, with the manner in which the bandits are operating without proactive steps from the federal government, they will soon enter Aso Rock.

“You have seen happenings in the country, the Kuje prison break and the threat to kidnap the president, God forbid but this is what I saw a long time ago.

“Those people in Afghanistan who are bandits and Fulani are the ones. They are being sponsored. I feel pained that this is happening in my generation. There is no government in Nigeria today. Those who are surrounding the president are criminals.”
